Creating the most productive & healthiest workplace

Air Quality 

Recent studies suggest indoor air quality (IAQ) and productivity of employees are related factors. Healthy air quality directly contributes to the performance of staff. 

Better air quality translates to fewer pollutants in the air and more oxygen. Improved oxygen flow to the brain results in better cognitive performance, while symptoms of oxygen deprivation include a decline in cognition. Understanding the relationship between the two topics will help employers improve both air quality and the health and performance of their employees.
